like that. gl this is really the defense of marriage act you're talking about. >> right. so the problem is -- the two cases are already related. states have already decided people can get married. the question is what is the federal government going to do about that? are you going to have separate rights for different states? i don't think that's really allowed. if you look at the disabilities community, race, gender -- there are not many cases where the states have said, go ahead, some states can discriminate, and some can't. >> is it possible the court -- and i raise this point. you raised roe v. wade, and i think that's a good point. we didn't have to do it that way, but we did. state by state, american institutions, i thought that was the democratic way. on the other hand, the defense of marriage act looks more vulnerable, for the reason that governor dean mentions, spousal benefits and all that. the but the court could rule differently. no defense of marriage act, and then send the same-sex marriage back, essentially california's prop 8, send those cases back to the states, either
